Could Vasayo be the next big nutrition MLM? (review)

Vasayo is another nutritional MLM that swears their supplement will change your life.

This time, they’ve got some real science to back them up.

Does this mean I’m involved?

This video explains everything:


Make sense? Either way, here’s the full review on Vasayo.

Overview

It was officially launched just this January, so they’ve actually only been in operation for about a month at the time of writing this. If you know anything about MLM, you know that getting in early is almost the only way to hit it big, but you have to hedge your bets on a new company and hope they do well.

Husband and wife duo Dallin and Karree Larsen founded the company, and it’s not their first. They’ve been in the game for nearly 3 decades and have experience building companies up to the billion dollar mark.

Dallin Larsen is both the founder of MonaVie, which had a pretty good run, and the President of USANA. So he’s got some impressive names under his belt. MonaVie was around for about a decade (they retired from the company when it was acquired) and made nearly a billion dollars in just a few years. [1]

MLM founders love to tell the “we came out of retirement to start this company” story, probably because it does two things:

  • Makes the reader think they must have been extremely successful to have retired at a fairly early age
  • Makes the reader think this new company must really have something special going for it if someone was willing to ditch retirement to run it

The couple tells Business for Home in a recent interview, “After having helped build two very successful companies in direct selling, Karree and I have decided to spend the rest of our days building a third and final company. We have every intention of leading this company until our last breath.” [2]

That’s promising, if it’s true.

Vasayo is based in Utah (of course). As of January, their products are only available in the U.S. and Canada, but they have plans for eventual international expansion.

How much does Vasayo cost?
The basic sign-on package costs $239. More involved packages (that allow you to make more money) cost $329, $499, and $889.

They’re also still offering a limited time Founders Package for $1,495 that gives you access to a 1% bonus pool.

To qualify for compensation, you also need to maintain 80 PV a month.

Products

Vasayo currently has five lines of nutritional products, all under the brand name MicroLife. Their products are all based around the science of micronutrients and “Advanced Delivery Technology” (ADT).

Basically, most nutritional supplements are only marginally effective (or not effective at all) because they way they’re delivered (combined with fillers, additives, and binders) doesn’t allow your body to properly recognize and absorb their nutrients.

Vasayo claims that not only will you not find any of these potentially harmful additives and fillers in their products, but they use micronutrients and liposomes to make sure that your body absorbs all of the nutrients in their supplements. Basically, these liposomes are like bubbles around the micronutrient made of lipids that are easily absorbed into the bloodstream so that your system can get straight to the good stuff – nutrient absorption.

The technology was created by Dr. Emek Blair, who worked on his Ph.D. at the University of California, Irvine and the California Institute of Technology. His work on lipids got him 3 fellowship awards and his products and formulas have won him numerous awards.

Their five product lines are as follows:

  1. MicroLife Core Essentials – multivitamin created to build a nutritional foundation in your body
  2. MicroLife Neuro – a supplement geared toward brain support and enhanced mental power
  3. MicroLife Energy – a natural energy-boosting supplement
  4. MicroLife Sleep – helps improve sleep
  5. MicroLife Renew – anti-oxidant blend that reduces inflammation

Benefits
Vasayo assigns a huge range of benefits to their supplements, including…

  • Improves metabolism
  • Lowers blood sugar
  • Enhances the immune system
  • Increases energy
  • Improves stamina
  • Relaxes
  • Protects from cell damage

As for the science behind their supplements, there is actually some research to support the benefits of liposomes in nutritional supplements. A recent study traces back to a number of experiments throughout the past four decades that have shown liposomes are an effective drug and nutrient delivery system. The study even claims that the use of liposomes is expected to boom in popularity in the nutritional industry within the next 5-10 years, so Vasayo might be ahead of the curve on this one. [2]

Side Effects
So far, there are no known side effects associated with Vasayo supplements. However, they were just released a month ago, so it’s way too early to tell.

That being said, although studies show that most people desperately need to increase their micronutrient intake, they also show that doing this through dietary intake (eating complex foods) is far more effective than using nutritional supplements in promoting nearly every benefit mentioned and then some. [3]

Opportunity

There are 18 ranks to the Vasayo compensation plan, which is a binary compensation plan requiring you to maintain two active affiliates (one on each branch) and one customer in order to remain active.

Retail commissions go up to 20%, which is a little low.

You get introduction bonuses of 10%-20% on new personal recruits, as well as residual commissions on your lesser leg. They cap residual commissions at $27,500 per week (but good luck getting anywhere near that). You get paid $25 for every 240 GV accumulated on both sides.

They also offer matching bonuses, rank, and leadership bonuses.

Recap

They’ve got an actual product, and it seems to have some legit science behind it. That being said, it’s way too early to know whether or not their product will actually be successful.

Their compensation plan is fairly straight forward and transparent, but it’s nothing impressive. You’re definitely not getting rich off this company unless you get in early and make it to the top.

Since Vasayo just launched, now would definitely be the time to hop on board, if you’re set on going the MLM route.

But if you like automated ways to build passive income, there are better ways.

(and you can trash those old MLM habits, too)
